Hell of a coincidence. This state is owned by the tribes.

 They caught 29 tons of dungees in 6 days, and we get to go crabbing how often? Are they farming them? :dunno:
Year round with rings?   December 1st through September 15th with pots? :dunno:

"WDFW is continuing to sample razor clams on a regular basis and will announce razor clam harvest dates when domoic acid levels drop on all beaches and the Washington Department of Health determines the clams are safe to eat."

Looks like they're waiting for all the beaches to be below the "death to clammers" levels to open anything.

Such a bunch of crap.

WDFW sells fishing and clamming licenses prior to cancelling or severely limiting opportunities.
It's BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They should prorate our loss of opportunity cost based on what they originally sold us on day one.

"Opportunity"= buying a license

Anything else is purely gratuitous icing on the cake.

New D. acid levels posted today.  All beaches have skyrocketed.  Shocking.  It looks like multiple readings on a couple beaches that vary wildly. I'm guessing late Feb. at the earliest now.

Mark Yuasa posted earlier today that WDFW made a deal with the coast local governments that they wouldn't open razors unless every beach was safe to ensure people didn't all go to one place.  I'll refrain from commenting on the logic there.

The takeaway is that if a single beach is at 20 or above, no bueno.

He also mentioned it takes two tests spaced 10 days apart below 20 ppm for the health department to sign off.  I wasn't aware of the exact procedure.

On a good note, it sounds like the water is clean, we are just waiting for the clams to detox, which sounds like sometimes takes a while.

One thing that has concerned me is that the entire coast of Oregon was shut down Jan. 7th and the ODW recommended not eating any razors dug after Nov. 16th.  Also, it looks like BC is in the same situation (if I deciphered their websites correctly).  Hoping late February now.
